Boomboxes:


In the early '80s I wanted a boombox, but wasn't old enough to buy one for myself (not having a job), and my folks thought they were too expensive and said "no". I thought people looked really cool walking around with massive boom boxes on their shoulders, but in retrospect I realize that only black guys could pull that look off. White guys walking around with boomboxes on their shoulders just kind of looked like white guys wanting to look black..

  1. Radio Raheem from 'Do the Right Thing' made me want a boombox. But yeah, a skinny little white boy can't really pull the look off.

    1. I would've tried but there was no way I could've afforded a boombox

    2. Heh, my 'boombox' was more like a regular CD player. I looked stupid.
